Sauber Engineering AG has received two new certifications for additive manufacturing (AM).

ISO 9001 and DIN SPEC 17071 for metal and plastics production were issued by TÜV SÜD as part of a combined audit, its first in the field of AM. According to the company, DIN SPEC 17071 is the first guideline for quality-assured processes which defines standardized requirements for AM. It assesses all quality-relevant aspects, such as personnel, documentation of workflows, infrastructure and qualification of systems, materials and processes.

‘In my view, the business success of manufacturers in the field of additive manufacturing can only be ensured where [good product quality and an effective management system] can be combined smoothly,’ said Matthias Herrmann, ISO 9001 lead auditor at TÜV SÜD.
